Gronitz Musikhof PCKS 5/4 Silver CC Tuba
This tuba is lightweight and easy to hold and maneuver, yet it has a warm and buttery tone. The large bows are made via a sheet metal construction process, which in one philosophy is the best way to manufacture the large bows, and which contributes in large measure to its light weight. The Gronitz PCK 5/4 is one of the finest large CC tubas available, and possesses a modern orchestral sound that is appropriate to a wide variety of literature. Despite its size, it's easy to play and very versatile. This one features a stunning silver finish.
Gronitz tubas are truly handmade. That term is used with relative disingenuousness across a variety of manufacturing categories, but with Gronitz, that characterization is absent any caveat. Every valve, every bell flare, every tuning slide, every crook is hand-fitted onto the horn in a small shop in Hamburg, Germany by master craftspeople for whom brass instrument manufacturing is practically part of their DNA.
